Energy Act 2013

Paragraph 4: Interpretation for the purposes of this Schedule

201.This paragraph sets out how certain terms are to be interpreted in this Schedule. For example, it states that “CFD” and “CFD counterparty” should be construed in accordance with provisions in Chapter 2 of Part 2 of the Act (sections 6(2) and 7(2) respectively), and that “electricity supplier” means a person who is a holder of a licence to supply electricity in either Great Britain or Northern Ireland. Definitions for other terms used in the Schedule (and elsewhere in the Act) are to be found in section 151.

202.The paragraph also specifies that references to a CFD counterparty in the Schedule (apart from references in paragraphs 9(1)(c), 9(1)(d), and 16) only apply when the CFD counterparty is acting as a counterparty in relation to an investment contract – in other words, where any property, rights or liabilities under a contract have been transferred to the CFD counterparty by a scheme under paragraph 16.
